If you expect to raid - even 10 man KAraz' - the decision is pretty much worth making just on the shoulder enchant/inscription, as even the +255 healing staff isn't that uber, with a +152 healing 1h mace from a level 56 doable quest

Aldor is big time easy mode.

Marks of Kil'Jaeden/Sargeras are much easier to collect just while questing than the equivalent rep items for Scryers (Firewing/Sunfury Signets), and there is at least one quest in the Lower City which is Aldor only.

On top of that, two thirds of the NPC's in Shattrath won't even give you the time of day once you choose Scryers as most of them are Aldor, and will be hostile to you if you ally with the Scryers (although they won't attack you within the city unless you go to Aldor Rise).

I found all this out after I'd already chosen Scryers (on the basis that Aldor are fags :P ).
As a result I'm not even honoured yet, whereas I would be much higher if I'd picked Aldor because I've found literally hundreds of Marks just by questing and virtually no Signets. :/

I finally made the decision for my frost mage, and I went for Aldor.
My reason to choose aldor over scryers is twofold.
On one side there is that juicy staff that shouldn't be too much work to get, once chosen for Aldor.
On the other side, many of my other characters want to choose Scryers for tradeskill related reasons, so choosing Aldor now lets me see both sides.

For me it was closer to the other way around: I found many more signets than marks. Most likely that was because I grinded large parts of my way from 68.5 till 69.5 by killing those sunfury bloodelfs in mana forge b'naar (or whatever that sunfury place just outside Area 52 is called). I got heaploads of signets and netherweave cloth, as well as some arcane tomes. Leveling that way is a bit slower than by doing quests, of course, but postponing doing the quests until lvl 70 has already brought me quite some extra gold. Not to mention selling the signets on the AH...
The amount of Marks I got wasn't really bad either, as I did the last bit of leveling before 70 in the demon place next to shadowmoon village (so the time between hitting 70 and actually owning a flying mount would be minimal :twisted: ). Those wrathdemons there are really easy kills for their level for a frostmage.

Obviously, such arguments only work optimally if you make the choice for either aldor or scryers only after hitting level 70. That way the whole of shattrath is avaliable while you are still leveling up (scryers have a better positioned inn, but aldor have a back entrance to nagrand ). And many buyable faction rewards have a level 70 requirement anyway.

If you do loads of shadow lab runs, you'll get soaked in aldor marks >_< (<scryer)
